Primark alert - lovely black and white print cotton swing coat with BIG collar - £15
Can confirm the black and white mac is alarmingly desirable - it's even lined, and the buttons are covered and everything.
On the same rack are cropped swing jackets in some v good vivid colours and a good cream belted mac (also £15).
Also worth looking out for cute 1940s-ish linen blouses with puffed sleeves and tie belt for £5 in chocolate, cream, coral and green; and their light cotton caftan tops for the beach in a huge range of colours with v pretty beaded detail (top pick - brown with turquoise)
A lot of the other stuff is very 1960-s inspired jersey that put me in mind of the very worst of 60s and 70s maternitywear, right down to the peter pan collars. Tread carefully...
I bought one of the orange swing coats with huge buttons. I'm 28 weeks pregnant and it covers my bump nicely and I can still get into a size 12!! Was quite taken with the black and white ones too, but I thought it would clash with my patterned wrap dresses. It would be great with plain bottoms or jeans though.
